LL Bean has a selection of pine mudroom/entryway type benches.

My wife likes them and they cost up to $300 each.

Of course I told her I could make a pine bench that was just as nice for less $$$.

Here is the end result. Total cost @ 60 dollars in pine, hardware and finish. My first time using milk paint.

The front pulls down for more storage than the tiny drawers on the original.

She is happy so I am happy :)

Todd,

Great looking build; I can picture those LL Bean decor mag’s and this does look like it would fit right in.

Nice Job!

I’m sure this one is a whole lot better than anything LL Bean has got.
